Update: Video highlights of the match:

Bermuda Coach Kyle Lightbourne previously said, “This is an opportunity to put Bermudian football more on the map. I have made it clear to our players that we are now coming up against the best in the region, so it is imperative that they focus on improving.

“This is the tournament we would really love to do well in and, for us, as coaches and all the staff that’s going down there, our job is to push these guys to get the best out of them that we can.”

“We shocked the Caribbean in being one of the best five U-20 teams last year. Well, now, we want to grow in pedigree in CONCACAF. That is our goal.”

Update: Interviews after the match:

Update 6.25pm: CONCACAF’s report said, “Oneko Lowe scored the equalizer in the 69th minute to give Bermuda a 1-1 draw with Trinidad & Tobago in the 2017 CONCACAF Under-20 Championship Group C opener for both at the Estadio Ricardo Saprissa on Sunday

“Lowe took advantage of a mistake by goalkeeper Montel Joseph, who came out too far at the top right of the penalty area. He knocked a deflection of a clearance into an open net to knot the score.

“The Soca Warriors were the more aggressive side in the opening half, which paid off with a 1-0 halftime advantage. Trinidad found space in the Bermuda defense as Nicholas Dillion slipped a through ball to an onrushing Kathon St. Hillare, who beat defender David Jones and then goalkeeper Detre Bell from 15-yards out in the 23rd minute.”

On Wednesday, Bermuda faces El Salvador and Trinidad takes on Costa Rica at the Estadio Nacional in San Jose
